This year’s conference theme, Responding to Crises, looks at how we, as human beings, react in times of hardship. We invite participants to think broadly about what crises are and to consider how our varied backgrounds inform our responses. We welcome new research, academic papers, and primary-source-based projects. Share with us what you’ve learned and how you adapted to your circumstances. Adherence to the theme is encouraged but certainly not required.
